Thank you to those who trust me with their equipment and the Cascadia House for allowing me to intrude during the first week of school, and everyone who has inspired me in one way or another. You don't know who you are.

Track Name: My Design
I walked so high
below them.
No future
they told, seeming
to have dreams sold
for a price, comfort.

Carpenters
will never know the room ill be born in
and the fruit of their labor
spoiled by me.
Just as the interior
designer will never ever ever know what their
design will be used by,
elders and children and the dying alive.
Track Name: Torture Garden
Take and your hands and your wants away because I
want my own.
Are yours mine?
Are we the same?
Take your pick, take your time inside my
many thoughts at bay.
Didn't mind what you said or how you treat me.
I just do what you want me to.
I don't care now, you go about your day.
I don't even care, you're just thick air.

And I can't see myself ahead.
Track Name: Burning Reply
wah
Track Name: *Violent Leisure
For those who only
perceive with their eyes
I may seem still
I may seem still.
Well that's the confusion
I tend to see.

I don't want your mess
here with me, near me.
I don't want you here.
I don't want you near.

I love dreaming
too much to stay awake.
Well whose fault is it more than yours?
I can't talk, I can't breathe, I can't think properly
when you're around, inside me.

That's the confusion I tend to live.

I don't want your mess
here with me, near me.
I don't want you near.
I don't want you here.
Track Name: Your Permission
I can't function without your permission.
I don't know what I am asking for.
Walk with me, we'll have the time together forever.
The hole is near, we are coming.
Do you know what is coming for us?
I can't function without your permission.

And if you want me, you will keep me.
And if I need you, I will keep you.
As long as you say
"There will be no end to your life,"
I know I must be doomed.

I'm just a lonely person, will you rid me that?
I had just thought I deserve a friend, won't you leave me that?
I had just thought I believed in something true.
I had just believed that, that oceans get renewed.
I can't function without your permission.
